Pierre Laroch is the man responsible for the astral sphere on Bowie's forehead, an important part of his Ziggy Stardust persona. I've used the sphere, but painted a NASA image of our beautiful Earth in its place. The idea seems to work well with the song that brought Bowie to our attention in 1969, the mesmeric "Space Oddity". A few lines are written on one side of his face.
I count myself so fortunate to have been 20 years old at that fabulous time on our planet.
